   New Jersey ' s Plastic Pollution Reduction Law
   The law prevents litter and encourages the use of reusable bags by phasing out single - use plastic and paper bags .
   The law bans plastic bags , regardless of thickness , at grocery stores and retail outlets , as well as paper bags at grocery stores measuring more than 2 , 500 square feet . It also bans clamshell food containers and other products such as plates , cups , food trays and utensils; and makes plastic straws at restaurants available only upon request .
    
    
   The ban will not apply to the following bags:
   
   Reusable plastic carryout bags with stitched handles that can be used and cleaned multiple times
   
   Newspaper bags
   
   Laundry/dry cleaning bags
   
   Bags used to wrap frozen food , meat , vegetables , and bulk items
   
   Bags sold in packages intended for use as garbage , pet waste , or yard waste bags
   
   Bags provided by pharmacy to carry prescription drug
   Why are bags a problem?
   
   Plastic bags are typically used for less than 12 minutes before they are discarded . NJ residents use 4 . 4 BILLION plastic bags annually .
   
   Plastic litter accumulates in landfills , waterways and neighborhoods . Blockage of storm drains can lead to localized flooding .
   
   Plastics in our natural environment are nearly impossible to remove and cause the death of wildlife and marine animals .
   
   Paper bags require a large amount of wood , water , energy and chemicals to make and recycle producing a negative environmental footprint .
   What bags are best?
   Reusable! Bring your own!
